    my mil took her first pic this day,
    I taught her to click, focus,
    and she thought it’s cool – no fuss,
    A toast to the teacher then, Happy Birthday

    OJ lovely, lovely photograph 🙂

    one suggestion.

    working with images, i know how ‘duplicating/downloading other’s photos’ really works, and how manipulation happens, so try to place your watermark in the centre of the photograph, larger and transparent, that ways it tougher to duplicate. or else one would download this heavenly photograph and simply crop out your signature from the margins. no way!

    just wanted to let you know 🙂 and happy, happy budday to you father! 😀

    Happy Birthday to your Dad.
    I still remember the one you wrote about on 360.

    A very happy birthday to your dad, from the Imp and myself. We still talk about that lovely afternoon when he played a cuckoo clock symphony for her.

    Wonderful photograph.
    You have a great teacher!

    Aunty G: Thank you, kind soul, for your wishes,
    I reciprocate with hugs and kisses,
    On a day like today,
    I hope affection may,
    Erase the memory of a baby’s pisses.

    Piper: *Hugs* Thanks for stopping by, girl.

    Nitya: Thanks, Nitya!

    M…: I actually loved Skeletor. He had a brain, that one. Now He-Man, he was such a himbo.

    maidinmalaysia: Congratulations! Better late than never. Or, as my Dad always says when I am in a rush, better late than The Late.

    errormsg!: I did have the same thought but didn’t want to ruin the pictures by scrawling across them. I still don’t get why anybody would want to whack my pictures, but I’ll give your suggestion a shot. Thanks!

    richajn: Thanks for stopping by. I edit the picture in MS Paint.

    rajni: Three years ago. 🙂

    wordjunkie: He was so thrilled with his agog audience, he’d have continued all evening. 😉

    M4: Thank you, M4. Health above all. We realize its value now.

    dipali: He is fabulous. And so patient too. 🙂
